Driving through Pahrump I stopped by this place to get some coffee for the road and to take a pit stop. The waitress was ornery but very friendly, My thermos was filled and I even got a couple of cups with lids too. But then i saw this cool little Donkey that they had for sale. I still have it.

We tried the rotisserie chicken, the manicotti, the grilled cheese sandwich, the shrimp dinner and the hamburger. The only good meal was the hamburger!!! Slow service, too. The 3 "hostesses " and the front, that were just standing around and talking, maybe should have helped out!!!!

If you want to eat in a smoke filled Casino this is the place for you! I've never seen so many smokers in one place.

Gold town casino cafe. They only get 1 star because no option for zero. We came in a weekday at dinner time. They were not busy. We requested a table not a booth and the tables empty had not been cleaned yet so the hostess said it would be a minute to be cleaned. At least ten minutes later after... More

They have the best chicken wings. I order mine plain but you can get mild or spicy. You usually have to wait a wihle because their food is so good.

Housed inside a casino this little restaurant had really nice food and great lemonade, but the staff were a bit surly. The hostess seemed irritated having to seat us and the drinks waiter slammed our glasses on the table before storming off. Luckily the actual server was nice and friendly. I would award a 'very good' if they could cheer... More

We love having breakfast available at any time we want it. Not only is it available it is cooked well and tastes great. Nice variety of items on the menu and buffets in the evening. We eat here often.

If you have been to Lakeside and you enjoy the food, you must try Calico Cafe in Gold Town. Although both properties are owned by the same company, the chefs are different and it shows. Additionally, the food quality and quantity are superior in every way. This is a "NO BRAINER" try it for yourself. Enjoy!
